  1. Great arena and had a good time at the game! Funny moment during the trivia contest about the number of national championships the aggies have "claimed." Ha!! BTW, the upper level women's restrooms were amazing.
  2. Anyone going to the bb game Sunday?
  3. Thanks for taking the time to help me out. I lived in Connecticut a few years while growing up, so I have only made day trips into the city, and am by no means an expert in anything NYC. My wife and I are planning to visit in late March for the Knicks-Warriors game, so I was just assumed that staying in mid-town would be the most convenient. However, being budget conscience but not cheap, we would be open to staying in some other part of Manhattan that is fairly safe and very close to public transportation. It has been difficult to compare prices on Expedia due to the resort fees, so I was hoping that veteran Surly NYC visitors/residents could help me out with a list of places where the price per night + tax is the actual price. There are some Airbnb's that appear to be a good value, but staying in a hotel as a part of a package deal seems to be more reasonable.
  4. Of course, but I would also rather find a $220 a night room without a resort fee than the $250 a night room that includes $30 a night resort fee. For others, don't worry, I am not destitute, just trying to get a good deal. Thank you to those who have made suggestions.
  5. Any recommendations for a nice place in mid-town Manhattan that does not charge a resort fee? Most seem to be doing it now so I am not too optimistic. Thanks in advance.
  6. Brix BBQ is excellent, and their new location catty-corner from Hop Fusion will be convenient. Owner Trevor is a good dude too.
  7. After months of exhaustive research, I have come to the conclusion that the best hamburger in the 817, is the Griffs Double Giant/River Oaks location. That is all. Flame away.
  8. Good news! I just called The Pussy Whipped Bar and Grill in Clearfork, and booked you a table for two.........stud. Hook'em! JK! Have a great dinner and enjoy the night out! Plenty of games left this season.
  9. Thanks for the great advice and taking the time to post this.
  10. My son is the one graduating, so I am looking for advice more in the area of where to park, when to get there, bet places to sit, etc. My 80 year old mom will be with me, so I am trying to do a little advanced planning. You know, insider tips from someone who has been through one before.
  11. Any advice? .....and no, staying at home and watching it on The Longhorn Network is not an option. Thanks!
  12. I second the Perini Ranch Steakhouse recommendation. Well worth the short scenic drive to Buffalo Gap. Also, check out the Brick Oven Pizza Co.
  13. My Longhorn graduate is starting a new job this summer in The Woodlands, and is thinking about living in Conroe as apartments appear to be a little less expensive. That of course means driving I-45 to and from work daily. What is the traffic like for that commute? Hook'em!
  14. Keep your head on a swivel, and connected to your body.
